"Which is how do you actually recognize opportunities during the hard times? Is Dan now first of all? Because if you don't mind we go back to the beginnings of entrepreneurship. You told you a story that just started the to create a product off to hurt their concerns or the complaints off your first client. Which I think is the best approach to do so you should not go with a productive open before you have your first client but there is also specific mindset required to do so you have to be able to recognize opportunities when they're knocking on the door and the way. I see and I understand how you think I think you see opportunities on every corner but not perceiving all of them so my question on that spoke How do you recognize the right opportunities to follow? And then what kind of questions do you give yourself in order to filter the good ones from the bad ones will? It's a very good question and It's not that easy question. Because seven aspects that you need to assess and you need to check before you actually go for it for example and opportunity camps then you see how the opportunity comes basically you see that is a person has a problem so then unique to think. Can I love his problem? Yes or no you say yes. I can't so if you say gum then comes the question. How a night off his problem. Then you started to think about the solution to resolve the problem and then you have to assess if it's actually viable if it's that they cannot worked his enough market the for this prominent to solve these people for example that they face the same problem And then eventually come to the answer. If it's worth to go for it or not you have to seven on steps of these as you said before there many opportunities out there just to keep your eyes open to actually use your mind in order to think wisely Someone who sees the problem and that is market for it. For example that is not laugh is not money needed in order to build a solution then may h should be getting at least the first getting light in order to start moving a little bit to do something to test the market disease daily wonder that's not unique to go. Stay misstep you just you. Just the solution. Indata London you go to the market. You identify Alan. Then you build a small solution then you go to the market you just identify. This throats is right for them. If you get the boasted but then you get the green light for the Then you go back to the lab and you continue to the next steps and then you have final that year to that you can actually introducing market today the market. This is the approach. I I actually in general that means you actually feel throughout through viability protests essentially. Ask yourself if you're the one who can actually go through it than the solution if you listen to some professional investors this is also why they ask for the team set up because they wanna see that you are trying to solve a problem which can be. It can be a sales sales solution. It can be any sort of a solution but if you don't have the skills to hard skills and soft skills to solve the problem and implemented execute opponents than it makes no sense to invest into so I think that approach that you have is very healthy and again you know well done on that point it is also interesting to see that you came up with a with a way to cope with the current Enviros. And that'll be also interesting to know. How did you think how you figure out that? Yes there is a crisis around. Everybody's GonNa be close. There is still something we can do about it well Let me add something to give us. The we discussed the also very important to do to to have for start out the idea to go forward with the actually like the whole process because I can Super Jimmy Dean. Many of the sectors and many other things out of software out of fitness in different markets and different industries by two. Then you need to also ask a question to yourself. Do you WanNa go to the industry. The daily like that's a what you're doing you need to have you know most. Certainly that's also something that I was already getting as an advice. From a on a podcast. They also shared European debt. Passion is the driving force behind the idea but of course I asked to be a case that idea and if you can cover both there is a strong tendency that you actually going to execute upon and make something successful loud so in that point Constantinos. Where do you see yourself with train your pulse? Let's say in two or three years. Which markets are trying to tackle actively? Do you see the greatest potential of your product. Well we eventually wanted to capture Europe. I because I can see. There is a lot of market for the wellness and fitness industry. The only facing problem in Europe is the localization in different languages for example. Usa might be New Zealand market. Because you have the same language within Europe is not the case but again we that. I mentioned that I a thinks that can be is also our tag is not to stay on main to the sides. Klein management is then we want to create the nickname electrically to marketplace and To give x Avenue to the gym owners and also to the users the end user in order to be able to travel down find a gene find their studio find efficiencies.

Maybe you know if it was a journey. Maybe they'd have sensible skills for Mayo. Mummies a cool. I started chatting about what it wants to do and suddenly I realized I didn't know much about me cluelessly France. I know anything about musicals. I had an idea in my head of what the the Song GonNa Sound like and the story line and I wrote the script but I need someone to help me with blocking. I didn't even know what blocking was blocking is where people stood on the stage stage. I needed someone to conduct you. Costra an might show that sort of things in the in.

US Army Signal Corps for requesting an emergency diptheria serum delivery as the government scrambled to locate the nearest serum cash. Nome City City Council tackled another problem. How to get it there? The nearest railroad was in Nina. Six hundred seventy four miles goes to the east of nome and while there was a group of aviators willing to risk of flight the only planes available were older models with open. Cockpits pits with temperatures hovering around thirty below. Zero Alaska's governor wasn't willing to entrust the serum to such a risky venture ultimately the city council settled on the tried and true method of dog sledding. There was only one hitch. Normally the journey from Nana to nome took a Mushin team twenty five days to get the serum to nome faster after the council decided to get it there via relay one dog team would take the serum halfway from Nanna to known a second would meet them the and bring it back whoever drove the second team had to be an exceptional musher. They would have to get to the halfway point as quickly as possible. Then turn back around and head for GNOME at top speed. There was only one team for the job. Leonard Ed Sepulveda and Togo to make such a long haul Sepla decided to take twenty twenty of the thirty six. Huskies he had in his Kennel. Normally he wouldn't take so many dogs to carry such a light load however speed lead was of the essence. He and Togo needed all the help they could get. But even with such an urgent mission there was still still some dogs separate thought one up to the task. One of them was a six year. Old Dog named Balto. mm-hmm like Togo. Balto was a Siberian Husky. He was stuck here in Togo with black for everywhere except for a white chest and forelegs made it look like he was wearing socks. Although Balto was strong he wasn't particularly fast. He rarely ran with settlers principle teams and was mostly used for freight transportation with a big boxy body and a barrel chest Volta. It was always eager to work but SEPLA decided he would be sitting this one out. He needed his best dogs for the serum. Run BALTO wasn't one of them as SEPLA prepared his team for the long run ahead of them. A batch of serum was finally located in Anchorage on January twenty six. It was immediately sent on a northbound train to Nina. Once it arrived the serum run would would officially begin the morning of the twenty seventh Leonard. CEPA left nome the halfway point of the Lotto with Togo leading the way he would travel three hundred fifteen miles in just a few days and then turn around and do it all again. The weathe- was a bracing twenty degrees below zero. For many this temperature would be assigned to stay inside and drink hot chocolate by the fire. But for CEPA in Togo it was perfect sledding weather with clear skies and no wind the team set off on this sprint to the east as the sled skim through gnomes quiet streets. He's a crowd gathered to see Sepla off as Togo led the charge. GNOMES beleaguered residents couldn't help but feel a swell swell of hope if anyone could safely deliver the serum and Togo kings of the Alaskan Alaskan trail as they want hunched frame disappear in the distance. The cheering crowd quieted their hope. nope turned to fear as the full force of what lay ahead hit them. If the Diptheria Serum didn't reach nome the highly contagious disease would continue to spread unabated and as a deadly blizzard began to brew. Sepah and Togo I would have to use. Every ounce of their hard earned knowledge to survive the race coming up. Leonard Sapolu and Togo auto tested in ways. They never imagined now. Back to the story on. January Henry twenty-seventh nine hundred twenty five forty seven year old Leonard Sepah and his twelve year old dog Togo left from nome to participate in a massive massive dogs leading relay to transport a case of diptheria serum with no other way to get the medicine through the Alaskan Interior. It was up up to these brave rushes to save nome from being ravaged by this deadly disease but even if they got to the intended rendezvous do of Nolato them might not be any serum for them to pickup Leonard Sepah may have been the most accomplished Musher Alaska Oscar had ever known but the territory's governor knew that even he would struggle to complete the arduous six hundred and thirty mile round trip that that was asked of him if the serum was going to get to know SEPLA would need some help on January thirtieth more mushers were called to join the relay although Leonard supple would still take the most perilous leg other teams would help relieve his burden and instead of relaying the vials of serum villages and INS. They'd hand them off on the road instead. Head for ultimate expedients. One of the additional men called in to participate in the relay was settlers co worker forty two year old Ghana Carson. Before he left Sepah had given costs and permission to use his dogs. In case taste the mining company. They worked for needed anything if he did. Seth Lotto constant use a Siberian Husky named Fox as his lead dog. But kasin didn't like Fox he liked Balto source. Some of himself in Balto like Balto Causton was stuck doing menial work while Leonard. SEPLA became famous for his racing victories and speedy deliveries everyone in the Alaskan interior new new suppler and Togo while Qasim and Balto toiled in the background ignoring sepulchres advice. Khasan clipped Balto into the lead position on his gang line he had no idea how consequential that choice would be. As Sepah and Togo sped along the coast of the Bering Sea. They were unaware of the new strategy for the relay since it's time was of the essence the serum wouldn't be waiting for them. At a roadhouse. It would be latched onto an oncoming sled team. This team was racing to meet Sapolu and hand off the serum on the trail if Zappala decided to go off trail like wild bill Shannon had or if a snowstorm snowstorm reduce the visibility. The two teams could Possi- each other without knowing it. If that happened a far less experienced Russia Shah would be forced to undertake the most dangerous parts of the relay crossing the Norton. Sound the the same area where Sepah and his team would have died years before. Had it not been for Togo known as the Ice Factory Factory. The Norton sound posed huge risks to dog sledding teams in addition to its ever changing ice formations. The wind speed could reach up to seventy miles per hour on top of the risk of the wind flipping a sled and tossing dogs and men alike into the air. The powerful GAELS could could create a wind chill of an unfathomable one hundred degrees below zero when the temperatures drop that low. Oh a person's breath Confrrari's the moment. It leaves their lungs. If Sepah became stranded out on the sound in in such unfavourable conditions. He wouldn't loss long and early on the morning of January thirty first. A storm was brewing. Settlers team had already traveled nearly a hundred and seventy miles in a little over four days with the winds picking up. He knew it was only a matter of time until the Norton sound became impossible to navigate. If Sepah was forced forced to take the overland route it would increase the journey by at least a day but every day lost was another day diptheria gained and he decided to take the risk. It turned out to be the right decision.

"People's voices sharing sharing their experiences achievement cripes and beliefs these of the real stories of Aboriginal and Tar Strike on Australia. Hi I'm Mary Santa. And you're listening to the real podcast series in this episode. I'm chatting with writer and Poet Ellen venning even. I think I've pronounced that correctly. I'm getting a thumbs up when thing you've just mentioned of Mike before we got on just how much smarter you off than the rest of us when you book travel that you try and fly in the middle of the day because it's less like being a part of this big messy machine. I don't know if it's Ma more than dislike of a precious but lack. I definitely prefer to fly during the day. Hey like crowds Just feeling more lack person who has some personal personal space and not part of this like I told you machine of like yeah sort of flying can feel a little bit. I don't know like you just hope it on a bus. These days can feel so lack ordinary but I just think I'm lack win like for my parent's inst- generation like how like like special. It was to fly and the like got up got dressed up and everything to go on the plane and stuff so Yeah for me. It's like a big deal I'm not too good with travel because at slack it's artificial it's like it Moving too fast. Like to sort of do a few sort of grounding steps before I to someone else's country and and sort of tried. Yeah so they feel my way through that. And that's what I love about token to you already that you just saw observant Of Your surroundings roundings and pace of life and I suppose that's part of being a Russia Yeah I think so. I think Riders Yeah Really The head say And so yeah that was. That's always been the way that I sort of. Look look at the world yeah. We've just too many thoughts. Maybe and what are some of those granting steps that you do to kind of Acknowledge Bang on country. Yeah well when I was I coming here now on Kgo country I was outside your studio and There's a beautiful paperbark tree just outside And I could hear this a really annoying noise and I looked above me and I could see one of those noisy mynah birds Sort of like picking at the tree and that is sort of like watch this this little guy for a little little while What Ching him sort of make his mark on the tree And it was just through that really like little moment where I was like okay.

I've been here before I know the smell of this place Annoy the taste of this place and I know that my ancestors a here with me as I made that travel To yet to make sure that I have safety not in that space. So yeah and that's one thing we definitely get from reading your work that Not only observation that love of country and that talking about what connection and being aware of and burnaby wealth as days where you could hardly actually have never noticed the trae at the front of our office. And we've been here for three two years and I will not we'll pass it in the future and not notice it and look for a bird so thank you for that reminder but how important is it to stop and be aware and great forty. Think yeah I think it can like help hate in this like condition that we're living in that slack so busy so fast paced taste And sorry like capitalist I guess And Yeah thinking of a city like Sydney this. This beautiful play This yeah this country is is really strong and And if we all sort of acknowledge The WHO's mob whose mobs land that were that were on And gain in a little bit more knowledge of of that mob and and their their love for the land then we can sort of just bring that into our everyday lives lives really easily. I think. And thank you for helping us to do that. Three writing. Can you tell us a little bit about your mouth and where you're from. Yeah I'm a very proud Mellon Jolly Sally person from the language Group which is You know south of Brisbane SCENIC GRIMM goal karst The sort of just just getting onto the border of New South Wales Beautiful country if I may say of course I'm biased. we've got the mountains is C- Rivers a melon jolly countries between the Logan and Albert rivers and Yeah the border ranges of South Wales and Queensland. And we've got what my cousin Kohl's DOC soil black soil country because of The volcano So you know we have this. I really fertile soil and it's a really Important like biodiverse area And I I grew up in southeast Queensland. Sorry I've never been too far away from country and From family and it's something that I feel really privilege to have had And that's on my mother's side so my mom on both of her parents original and then my dad is Dutch and my dad migrated here in the early nineties. Yes So having a really big aboriginal family and really big Dutch family There's just been. Yeah just been part of who I am and have birth leads. The family had a reunion. Yeah well what's really beautiful is My Grandmother's mothers go to meet each other. A House officials that So my Oma on my dad's mom She's she's quite odelay a But she decided that she you know she never been on an aeroplane before but she wanted to make her grandchildren And she even started like taking English lessons and stuff so she could like communicate and Yes so she should never be played before And like my dad just didn't know how she was GonNa Gar. Sorry I'm yes. She took it to the doctor and she. It got some valium and probably she just went straight out pay yeah came here To a whole nother country and This was yeah this was when I was. I guess maybe eight years old and my brother was five and We invited my Nanna. My Mum's mum over and I just remember my two grandmothers sitting On a back Dick Looking at the Bush behind us and I don't they probably couldn't really lack talk much but we'll like not in like verbally I believe but just slack. Yeah it was just a really beautiful moment that I'm really glad that I got to witness. I guess yeah. I'm on behalf of my grandmother's poss- now actually all my grandparents saw And that's what's bad. Isn't it having those kind of moments in memory. Anyway you Kinda go that was special and and also one of those as you get older you kind of create more and more. Yeah Yeah it's epic and I'm really glad that my mom like reminds me of things like when I sought to show will have a Jahn about Nana and show lack told me the Islamic funny things not used to sail at these one liners or whatever and In that way like Cape Lack remembering and it keeps sort of staying staying president And as you get older you're sort of perspective shifts I guess and it becomes even more important to like hold onto those memories memories. And what was it like growing up in South East Queensland. Oh Yeah I love I love. I love the weathe- a love the humidity I love Yeah the the water I love yeah just air and everything and And also I guess just how sporty it is. Because I'm like pretty sporty myself So yeah and these things you sort of learn because I spent two years in Melbourne Cy. The contrast was really clear. And I got to sort of learn about the things that I appreciated about harm and and and then also also the new things that I was appreciating when living on the land of the Coordination Moments I. Yeah was there a moment when you knew that writing was exactly what you wanted to do with your life so good question. I think it was pretty young. Hey that riding sort of came to me I because my mom she lacked keeps things blessed. She's she had this little Thing that I had you drawn and school widow. So what do you want to be when you grow up. And I'd written of writer. I think you know I think I was. It's like five or something Yeah Really Young I just really loved reading As a kid and yeah mom would dislike. Put a book in front of me and I would to speak totally engrossed in Yeah in in in writing and and then sort of had my own stories in my head from yeah from pretty young. I guess that's so special to know at that age and then to have kind of rolled out exactly what you wanted to be. I think that's increasingly rare but actually talented. What you thought you wanted to at five five is another thing again What do you find most challenging about writing Yeah I find it really overwhelming coming. Because there's a lot of things that I want to write about I feel lack this so much like injustice in this country and I wish that poetry and writing Roy ways to combat that just injustice or to heal oh and I'm not sure if it can ever be enough so I just do the little bits that I can and try not to let I guess all of the things that I see around me overwhelming Would you ever write for play or film movie inserted brain kind of your woods to life a little bit more in and you kind of saying that you wish that it was more than just woods injustice They other avenues of storytelling telling that you would want to potentially explore. Yeah I think like drama and film I really powerful modes of storytelling. And it's definitely something thing that I've been sort of playing around with recently. TESA have to sort of keep you in. That's exciting maybe. Maybe we could do a follow up podcast when you're allowed to talk about it. Maybe I don't even know what she's talking about yesterday. I don't know anything everyone out there listening today. I'm but yeah when I kind of raid I got. I know this is good but I just don't have to know how you'll go to why this is just such a a skill and I know that you've been an editor as well so How have you kind of grown in your craft over the years? Yes so Like a real young man. I just knew the elect writing. I didn't know how or why or like what I wanted to write. A bad I sort of yeah I was I would read stuff And I decided that I would that I wanted to study riding at Uni So I went to Ki t And Yeah just sort of ran into previous a low key to yes. I think we WANNA started added the same year Sorry who is who is mad because those are awesome bunch of us at the New Knuckle unit their original staff and students And Yeah that's when I started off. WHO's this who's this huge Rueda? Knuckle Person Listen. You know who. Who are these people 'cause we didn't learn about them at school even though it would have been highly relevant and deadly sadly and and would have really you know helped I think as a young person saw like cool or I Went to library good out On a your drew's work Alkaline fogarty Samuel Begum Watson Lisa These average Maradas that I didn't know about no one sort of at a point in that direction An.
"weathe" Discussed on KTTH 770AM
"Pleasure and privilege known him for many years now and. I thought you buy. Here a little bit. Piece of music. I thought it was actually quite good. Well produced. Thank you. I haven't heard that for years. But wow, it's it's actually it's great to hear and it's more procreate now than ever before. So thanks a little flashback. They're just finished talking with Carmine a piece of the vanilla fudge, which is before your time. Older bet bogert nap ac- and an apiece. Pardon said apathy, we had a discussion about the pronunciation of his name. So it's only right that we should play of your music. That was well produced were just for just for giggles, where Where'd you record that? Record that in my home studio, believe it or not. Background in music and vocals and so on. So I just put that to use and just just work it out over a period of few weeks. The the music was actually licensed and then edited and then I laid down vocals on top of the music. This program has turned into something actually quite extraordinary amazingly unexpected, which is exactly the way. Well, okay. Let's let's look I tell people I play rock and roll music all the time because it keeps you young, and it makes you strong, and you're going to be needing to keep a youngest mindset and remain strong. As we as we go headlong into the future that a bunch of weirdos have mapped out for us. I'll tell you from the Blasio to the collapse Venezuela now. Looking at natural news. It says it right here. Cannibalism socialism's collapse of Fenice weathe- now leading to citizens of looting human corpses for anything that can be traded for food. It's so insane. John, you know, so much has changed since we last talked. It's been almost maybe a couple of years. I'm sorry about the fall too. I mean, we're also busy just trying to survive in our own independent media operations under this tyranny of censorship. You know, was you know, we really don't talk that much all of us. So whenever gonna chance to talk, but what's happening in Venezuela, in my opinion. This is going to happen in many liberal cities across America. It has. The projection toward that has begun in Seattle, Chicago, it's begun in San Francisco, and it's going to continue to accelerate to the point where every person who can will lead liberal cities, and they had to you know, taxes Zona, Utah, Nevada other places is already begun. Specifically what has begun? The the collapse of habitability look at Seattle. The government. There is funding. The drug addiction problem you have mass homelessness in San Francisco. You have needles and human feces all over the streets so much that the city has published, you know, an app pointing out where the feces you're kidding me. No, no. They have a human feces map app. Poop out. It really. Oh, no. I tell people it's not going to be distorted it is distortion look around. It certain areas, and you look at the financial projections cities like Chicago based on the promises they've made to pensioners and retirees according to projections that I saw published today on zero hedge they're going to have to dedicate over fifty percent of city revenues to just paying retirees. I mean, the city's budget will go to that. That's unsustainable. You means you can't pay for cops fire protection emergency services, roads, bridges, you, basically, the city government just becomes a pension hub. And eventually it has to stop paying because it can't afford it. And then you have the people used to work with the city become the new wave of homeless, and this is going to happen in the years ahead because it's not sustainable can't work. Like this president. I don't know how you feel about him. But I like him a lot. Now, he said, hey, you know, what we're going to direct those migrants that are in detention now and just just let him go into the sanctuary cities. I'm not sure if that's a threat or if it's a plan. But I think it's a brilliant. You'll you want a bunch of migrants. Okay. We're going to send him straight to your city. And by the way, when you call screaming for help to the federal government. Look what Trump is done to us. That's going to make a really interesting little platform plank in my platform for twenty twenty that you insisted on them being here. And now you've got him up to your neck. So you deal with it. It's koneohe why not you know. Well, I saw that as as some very appropriate Trump humor. He, you know, he's not afraid to poke a stick in the eye of the rain, lawless Democrats, and when they declare a sanctuary city, right? They say, well, we're not going to buy federal law. We're gonna protect illegal. Then basically, I think what Trump says you wanna legals will give you a legal just drop them off their bus amend, drop them off see how that works out for you. The problem is of course, that in California all these illegals end up being given voting rights, and they get counted in the census. So then California gets more members of congress. And and congressional seats are taken away from other states where citizens are and in California's senators are elected by illegals voting, which means that national federal policy is now determined by illegal votes. So that's gotta stop because we're losing we're losing the country. There was in the Republic. It's almost gone. On. We've got to stop illegal votes from overriding the votes of citizens. It makes no sense to me how anybody who is a rational thinking individual with an IQ of above is let's say seventy let's be generous could could submit for our consideration letting illegal aliens foreign nationals illegally enter our country, and then vote in our national state and local elections while being subsidize with taxpayer money. I don't get it beyond irrational. It's criminal. It's this is a this is a criminal conspiracy to overthrow our. Well, you say democracy. But of course, as you know, it's a constitutional Republic. And they are the Democrats are trying to overrun it. They're trying to destroy it from within. And I've said before and I'm not afraid to say this on your show that what those Democrats, especially those in California like Feinstein and former governor Jerry Brown as what they what they have done. They're really makes them enemies of the people are enemies of this Republic, and I've called for President Trump to arrest them and charge them with conspiracy to carry out an insurrection against the United States suffer, but to see military police dispatch to California and to arrest the governor and the mayors of the cities that are sanctuary cities. But maybe just you know, send busloads of illegals. Their first and then and then maybe arrest of I don't know, but I'm calling for their arrest to add. In fact, there are several people out there that we will go into a on on art midnight. But we will go into it. And we do go into on caravan to midnight. We can pretty much talk. Whatever we talked about whatever we want how ever long we want. They're going to be a bunch of arrests. And these people are absolutely going down like this thing, Julian Assange, wait ten testifies. If the DNC they they're going to have a hole blown in their cover story and the pedestrian as you you've covered the pedestrians. You know, how that goes as well. So we're just praying for all that to come out. And also praying that William bar continues to do his job. I'm I'm surprised that he has so far he has proven himself to be someone who's upholding the rule of law. I did not expect that because I think everybody's corrupt, you know. But. So far pleasantly surprised let's just hope he carries through thought. It was funny when he said what you're talking about spying attorney general bar you're talking about spying looked at. It goes authorized surveillance. Does that sit better in your mind? Who was it was Schumer that said something more about? About surveillance something it's like, what was Nadler. I. Blurred together. I can't tell them apart. It's all about that, Maxine Waters. This. This verse talking about. How dare you affectively? She was saying how dare you allow these students through your lending practices to wreck up this unsustainable, unpaid back of all debt, and they're going to stop that. No seven or was it six another one stopped at twenty ten and it was all over with twenty twelve she just sitting there. This is what I always say like as long as the black community continues to elect people like waters and support people like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and these these idiots were in it for themselves. They're never gonna get any relief from their so-called black leaders. It's not gonna happen. Well, absolutely. I think you know, we've seen the blacks at movement we've seen Candice Owens rip into who. Was that a Nadler? She ripped in the Nadler and Ted new. Classic video clip. What am I favor? It's watch the twice. It was beautiful. And and Ken is always just doesn't take any flack. And that's what's what's so amazing about what she's doing is standing up and saying look don't think that just because we're black that we are going to vote for your essentially, you know, plantation democrat policies, and she's right about that. And there's a lot of black folks that are following in her footsteps and a lot of people waking up, you know, regardless of their race or skin color, or you know, religion or anything. When you have people like Okasha Cortez. Elected to congress has a degree in economics. Apparently can't do basic bath rain collapse the food supply vaster patient as well as the oil as the financial system. Absolutely. I mean, you you take down the air travel industry at it's over. Most of America. You ban, combustion engines, and it's over for farming, agriculture transportation tourism, everything collapses. Right. She thinks that's an awesome idea. Sorry. But it's true. And there was a study recently said the average I q in America is eighty two home. No well. Roughly half, the people below eighty two. I think if you took all the Democrats in congress and of there together, it would be about eighty two joking about sixty average IQ of sixty. So the average IQ is eighty two number. That's not good. No, no. That's that's below the ability to reason. And that's why the Democrats are pushing these emotional, please. And they have they rewrite history every day. You know, now they're saying that the allegation that Trump officials were spied on is a fact l'est conspiracy theory after the last two years of the Democrats pushing a fact list's conspiracy theory that claimed Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election. So they have everything upside down. They don't know what a fact is they don't they don't exercise reason. And it's almost like those parts of their brains have been burned out. They are a zombie zombie organisms with political power. You don't realize that much of this will be will be a little bit of theorizing combined with. Well. Here's the research is what the research shows do with what you may. But I wonder why the I q scores are dropping like this is it radiation is the visit GMO's.
"weathe" Discussed on In The Thick
"Focus and the possible of interventionism right now. Can you all just give us a sense of why? Now, how we got to this point because Venezuela has been in and out of crises various political and economic ones over the past eleven years more acutely economic over the past three years and the last year. And so why now have things reached to the point where the US is intensely focused on what's happening in Venezuela. And how is it the case that the Trump administration, which is largely isolated in so many ways in foreign policy has been able to get fifty other nations. Including all of the other ones in Latin America, except from Mexico and the European Union with which it has a lot of splits right now on the same page and demanding that Maduro has to go right now. And that grotto is the legitimate president. How we got here because my reporting here in DC that that the United States sort of being a little bit late to the party in in terms of the diplomatic front. But now, of course, is taking a big role in the United States has the bigger stake to put in that way in the way of sanctions, but the group ulema and the countries that are around Venezuela and Canada have been on the lead of sort of this diplomatic located by the were the first to say that they would not recognize my Ludo once he will be nag rated after his contentious election in may. So so, you know, the United States is playing a big role certainly any sort of now seems is more the forefront. But the president is is that you have a block of Latin American countries, actually, well and the receiving end of grade. Refugee crisis leading the way they fill. What's your take? I think we need to look back just a little bit. First of all of the the twentieth of may election that he'd I mentioned which was widely regarded as a sham not only inside his Wailer. But throughout the region, the opposition mostly boycotted election. We don't really know what the true turn out figures even were because the electoral thirties is controlled by the government and. Zero went ahead and had himself sworn in for his second term on the tenth of January. But in tremendous isolation. I mean, this is a president who had to celebrate the fact that countries or countries, I should say inverted commas like south-ossetia Abkhazia, sending delegations and he had to put banners up around the city saying hashtag, I am the president. This is a government does not terribly convinced of its own legitimacy. But prior to that the Lima group had come up with a tremendously strong statement in which they said that the national assembly, which is parliament Jimenez, well is under the control of the position was the legitimate, the only legitimate remaining institution and also the background think that we need to bear in mind, as well regionally is that first of all has been sharp drift to the right in the region politically in recent years and just in the last couple years we've seen the beginning this year also narrow right wing, president elected in Brazil. Duquesne Columbia took over from her mama Santos who had a very really laissez faire attitude for most of his presidency as regards Venezuela, and we mustn't forget the enormous refugee crisis that is affecting the entire region with three million also Venezuelans three and a half million minutes outside the country, absolutely unprecedented for Venezuela and the biggest migratory crisis in in certainly in recent history in Latin America, which is affecting all these countries makes it necessary for the governments of these countries to look for a quick solution to stop this. Stop this outflow like jump in. We my meetings. He'll win Bassett IRS from the region. There's a clear. We'll to action I think there'd be the other. They're dealing with very situations in Columbia, for example. You know, there are million Venezuelans country that has itself being populations of internally displaced people armed conflicts. And you know, they're seeing the situation or something that could possibly Escalade that could be stabilizing real urgency to act. This is the Cold War reading of the United States sort of stepping into trying to sink. The oil intervening is not important. You have you have a unified front of countries Chile. Argentina. Pantomine through Ecuador, you know, who are the receiving end of of this of this humanitarian crisis, and they have an interest in seeing the the regime of nNcholas mood fall so fast. We can return to some form of debilitation. Yes. So you both mentioned the US, and let's get into that noncontroversial topic of US Latin American policy over the years. I always say then is third rail issue I've been covering it for years and every time you try to have the conversation. Venice weathe- recently, it can get a little bit muddied, and it can get really intense. But then we want to talk a little bit about how the US is playing a role in this crisis, or whether they aren't because there is talk about you know, there were sanctions that are on Venezuela. That's happened over the years supporting human rights things like that. So Phil I mean, how much is the US responsible for what happened in Venezuela in the last since job is I mean, what can you give us more? Context about that. No, the Venezuelan crisis created by. Silence. You know, they elected government in in a free and fire lection back in one thousand nine hundred eight the government of Chavis his successor is nNcholas Maduro who took over in two thousand fourteen off to to China's died of cancer, but the entire economic and social and humanitarian crisis that we're seeing is down to a extremely extremely ill advised. Not to say corrupt mad economic policies which have wrecked an economy, which the mentally wasn't in great shape. When Chavez came along when he took office in nineteen ninety nine. But is now the worst run economy has been for some time for the worst economy in the world, certainly the worst run economy anywhere in the Americas. And not only did they do that. But they steadily eroded democratic checks and balances closed off peaceful routes to resolving the political polarization. Made it pretty much impossible for the position alternately to win presidential elections. Anyway, ruled out the possibility of in of of ever leaving office, and that's where we are today. And certainly the United States has made some mistakes along the way said these had some influence on what's been going on. But primarily this is Venezuelan created situation ally, would you tend to agree with that assessment though? I thoroughly agree with feels Esmond of the situation up until this point. I think the narrative that the sanctions have contributed to the crisis in Venezuela. Kabila ludicrous, it's been terribly mismanaged. Corruption is completely out of control the productive apparatus was nationalized giving out to political allies and cronies and in the military, and sort of course, it's completely collapsed. The Venezuelan government started controlling access to dollars hard currency to control imports. And of course, that created a whole black market. And a cycle of corruption. We had an official here in in Florida indicted with over a billion dollars in money that was that was of course, diverted from dependence on. I that's just of course, the cases that we know. So this definitely being created by Venezuela's. However, the US is taking now a much more forceful approach with the imposition of oil sanctions that are to kick in actually at the end of March. If I'm not mistaking that could really really really hit the when I kinda me to the point where even with this management with corruption the government has had access to dollars because of the because selling oil to the United States. That's us never stopped. You know will be able to to sell oil to United States. Do I'll do the last couple of decades? And actually, that's what helped fund many social programs and all these things and the growth of the, of course, of the St. PAT's, you know, we're talking about a bloated government machinery. But now, of course, with the with the threat of sanctions that could have reorientation for for normal people.
